Austin, Texas, based startup Hangar Technology has raised $6.5M to provide drone as a service, offering flights, data collection and analytics to companies looking to utilize drone technology without having to pilot them, or crunch the billions of data points that they generate.
Commercial drone operations today are mostly manual in nature, from mission design and planning to flight control and data analysis. Hangar automates all of this, enabling rapid scalability without needing expert pilots and drone operations managers.”
The idea is that collecting and analyzing drone data for commercial uses would be as simple as showing up to a location with the properly equipped drone, and pressing one button on an app to complete a job in full.
Made to order maps, graphs, photos or videos would simply show up in a Hangar client’s inbox or data gathered by drones would populate a company’s designated systems, with little effort on their part.
Hangar is a software technology company focused on harnessing the opportunity presented by the mass-adoption of drone hardware and the market demand for the data these drones can provide. Hangar integrates cutting-edge technology with existing drones to provide solutions across industries.
Hangar has been testing an early version of its software and platform in a private beta with commercial drone pilots and construction and real estate businesses in Austin, Texas.
